My lovely wife Sharon and I had a realistic date night in Quebec last night at the wonderful Cafe du Monde, a lovely bistro right on the Saint-Laurent. We began with spinach soup (voluntarily chosen), and that is when I decided that the French can make anything taste good. We had the same entree, salmon with a basil crust, cooked perfectly, with risotto and vegetables. For dessert, I chose the obvious creme brûlée and she had a selection of fruit sorbets.
Add a very nice white wine, espresso, and finish with Chartreuse, and, voila!
Take that, Fr. Z.
